I suggest:sbooth wrote:Play was designed from the ground up to be a jukebox. It stores play counts, dates (and now ratings and skips) and has smart playlists to allow more flexible listening. All this is made possible by using its internal database. Bypassing the library would invalidate a lot of these advantages.
1. a library for the official album collection.
1.1. possibility to sort library by directory structure and filename, fallback for directory structure if metadata inconsistent
1.2. adding files to playlist from library.
2. The second issue I understood is under discussion particularily on this thread; a single playlist separate from the library that can be altered on the fly without messing up the sacred order of things.
Previews, short loops, samples, single songs, random funnies from the internets, "this one *hic* song you gotta *hic* hear man, I'll just download it, man" :)sbooth wrote:What type of listening do you do that having your music in a library like Play's is detrimental?
